Product Details

GOOD NEWS FOR SKIER’S THUMB SUFFERERS!

The RhizoLoc thumb orthosis has an individually adaptable aluminum stay which stabilizes the thumb saddle and metacarpophalangeal joint. This allows for optimal healing of the affected collateral ligaments. A special Velcro tab can be adjusted in order to limit the movement of the metacarpophalangeal joint and to immobilize it as treatment requires.

SECURE AND COMFORTABLE

With its Velcro fastenings, the orthosis can easily be put on and taken off by the patient. The orthosis can be adapted to the patient’s individual thumb size by means of the adjustable thumb tab. The breathable material with its integral pores allows air to circulate, thereby preventing the skin underneath from becoming sweaty or itchy. The RhizoLoc therefore sits securely in an anatomically correct and comfortable position on the hand for effective therapy.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

All Train active supports can be machine washed separately at 30°C with liquid detergent. Please note the following:

  1. For products with Velcro straps: remove the straps if possible, or fasten them securely in position.
  2. If possible, also remove pads/inserts and their terrycloth covers before washing.

We recommend using a mesh bag (spin cycle: maximum of 500 revolutions per minute). Air dry your Train active support. Do not dry it in a tumble-dryer because this can damage the knit.

Please wash your Train active support regularly so that the compression qualities of the knit are retained.
